Wylie and May Louise Jones Gallery


Ninth Annual Panorama Invitational Exhibit

PANORAMA INVITATIONAL 2013

Every year for the past nine years high school art teachers from around Kern County choose artwork made by their students to be exhibited in the Panorama Invitational at Bakersfield College’s Jones Gallery. The young artists see their work in a professional venue. They also see artwork their peers are making from other schools. Both these opportunities can have a huge impact on the subsequent work they produce as well as a sense of pride in the work they do.

Surface

As its first exhibit of the 2011 -2012 season the Jones Gallery at Bakersfield College is pleased to present the work of three artists: Louisiana painter Ellen Soffer, California drawer and swimmer Dennis Sopczynski , and Oregon printmaker Brett Anderson. What attracted us to these works before looking for any type of meaning was the rich, almost tactile, quality of the surfaces.

Surface exhibition run:
September 8, 2011 through September 29, 2011
Please join us at a reception September 8, 2011 5:30 – 7:00 pm

Gallery hours are Mondays through Thursdays 1:00 – 4:00 pm

      
Ellen Soffer: “Interpretation is left to the individual viewer. My intention is that the paintings evoke feelings left behind by a dream, an emotion, or a memory without being limited to the specific details of the event itself.” Ms. Soffer holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

            
Dennis Sopczynski, “A swimming pool is a public space. Yet I see it as private, intimate, transformative, magical, and reflective. These drawings are about my “journey” through life, good, bad or indifferent.” Mr. Sopczynski holds an MFA in Visual Communication from California Institute of Arts.

                    

Brett Anderson, “Satirical forces are at work in most of my pieces, and the entities most exposed by this scrutiny are myself those like me. Arguably, the dialogue that can be unraveled out of my work will best be understood by those with an unhealthy exposure to Saturday morning cartoons, suburban malls, and violent video games.” Mr. Anderson holds an MFA in Printmaking from University of South Dakota at Vermillion.
